Ticket #7156 (closed task: worksforme)
After migrating to Fedora 13 with VirtualBox 3.6.2 r63112 from Fefdora 12, I cannot use Windows 7 disk created with version 2.x

- I saved my .VirtualBox dirctory from Fedora 12 with a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit virtual machine. This was created by Virtual Box v 2.x (I don't remember the exact version I had but it was not the OSE)
- Performed a new install of Fedora 13, not an upgrade
- Copied the Windows 7 files from both the Machines and HardDisks directories to the appropriate directories under .VirtualBox on Fedora 13.
- When I start up Windows 7, I get a message "Windows Failed to Start, Launch Startup repair.
- I select Launch Startup Repair and the message just repeats.
- I decided to create a new Windows 7 VM from a DVD using a different name to preserve the previous version
- VB starts reading the DVD and Windows Boot Manager displays the message "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem, Insert your Windows installation disk and restart your computer"
The error reported is 0xc0000225
I looked up the error and found in a Vista forum the following:
That error code is often due to the BIOS not being recognised as fully ACPI compatible.
I think this problem may be associated with APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller, not ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface).
My question is, if Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit worked on the same laptop previously with Fedora 12, why would this be a problem now with VirtualBox?
I will reboot and verify that the APIC is enabled in the BIOS (which is the latest available for my Lenovo T61P) and amend this ticket.
